‘Light of the World’

I hope you don’t mind me posting this hymn again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. This is a pretty dark world without the light of Jesus Christ!


+’Light of the World’

The only excuse I have for posting this hymn umpteen times is, I love it: Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed (18th century style) by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I’m really sorry they took down the video that used to go with it.

The “+” in front of the title was a typographical error which I thought it better to let stand–as a cross.


‘Light of the World’

I can’t help posting this hymn again–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

If you’re new here, know ye that we take hymn requests, we’d like to do every day; so if you’ve got one that you’d like to share, just Leave a Comment anywhere on the blog and we’ll do the rest.


‘Light of the World’

Lord, we need your light!

I like the title of this album by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band: “Sing Lustily and with Good Courage.” Or, as I once heard a wise woman say on the radio, “When things get dark, and you don’t know what to do–sing louder!”

Light of the World, by Charles Wesley: for the true Light, that lighteth everyone that cometh into the world.


‘Light of the World’

O Jesus Christ Our Lord, it’s dark down here! Way dark! Be thou our light, O Son of God. You are the light the darkness can’t put out, that lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

This thought came to me yesterday: We live by God’s word or not at all.

Hymn by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.


A Favorite Hymn, ‘Light of the World’

If you’ve been here a while, you know I’m crazy for this hymn–Light of the World by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. I was whistling it as I rode my bike this morning.

Jesus Christ, “the true light, that lighteth every man that cometh into the world” (John 1:9)–the only light, I dare say, by which we truly see.


‘Light of the World’ (We Need You!)

It’s a dark and stormy morning here today. Let’s have some Light: Jesus Christ Our Lord, “the true light, that lighteth every man that cometh into the world (John 1:9); the light that this world’s darkness can’t put out (v. 5).

Yes, I know I post this hymn pretty often–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band.

But we take hymn requests, too, so if you’ve got one, let us know.


‘Light of the World’

Please don’t mind that I’ve posted this hymn for the umpteenth time–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. This is the hymn that was in my mind this morning. It went with me on my bike ride, and I was glad of its company.


‘Light of the World’–Plus Prayer Request for Me

You’ll pardon me for indulging in one of my very favorite hymns–Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, sung by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. My path needs some light right now, and I don’t mean maybe.

Please pray for me! Again, I’m not free to give details, but I have more than one family member in grave danger, health-wise, and my livelihood suddenly seems to be on thin ice. And that’s all I want even to mention. Plenty to keep me wide-awake all night.

Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me. O Son of God have mercy on me, and help me.


My Own Hymn Request (‘Light of the World’)

I hope you don’t mind my posting this again, this morning: Light of the World, by Charles Wesley, performed by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. This is the hymn I want to take with me into oral surgery. I’m not good at having bits of myself cut out. I know, I know–after it’s all over, it won’t seem like such a big deal. But just now, I find the whole idea extremely daunting. Please, Lord, give me strength: in Jesus’ name, Amen.
